Our Work

The Public Law Project (PLP) is a national legal charity which aims to improve access to public law remedies for those whose access to justice is restricted by poverty or some other form of disadvantage.Within this broad remit PLP has adopted three main objectives:

  • increasing the accountability of public decision-makers

  • enhancing the quality of public decision-making;  

  • improving access to justice.

Uniquely for an organisation of its kind, PLP undertakes research, policy initiatives, casework and training across the range of public law remedies.

PLP has meant there are hundreds, if not thousands, of advisers around the country using public law remedies for their clients. These advisers came to PLP training or used the advice line and realised they can help their client tackle public law wrongs with immediate impact and results. One adviser said to me: “This is the most useful conversation I’ve ever had"!
